If you could, would you use a "Do-Over" button?

    For each mistake you made, if you were able to hit a "do-over" button and rewind just enough to go down a different path, would you do it?

    Howard related, because he should have had one available when Artie, or Jackie, or Billy, or KC left the show

    I probably would have worn one out, if it was available.

    Just sayin

    A pal of mine from the 1980s, Ken Grimwood, actually wrote a novel based on that idea: REPLAY, where a guy dies and is forced to relive his life over and over again. Each time, he makes different decisions and different things happen... but things don't always go well. Note this was many years prior to Groundhog Day.

    Definately not.

    It seems like a nice idea at first thought, but I wouldn't. My experiences both good and bad are what made me who I am today. I try to learn from my mistakes and make changes moving forward. When a bone breaks and is properly set and healed, the fractured area heals stronger then the bone around it.

    Exactly this.

    And i wouldn't be where I am today with the family I have, so as much as the bad times sucked, I wouldn't change a thing.

    I'd only go back to one point
    today or tomorrow in 1984 would be just fine, I would of stayed home and the trajectory of my life would
    {I'd like to think though probably not } be greatly changed.

    Is it a book available on Amazon or the local library? I'm always looking for interesting reads.
